Exposé on the culture of fear

Revista Trip has a good article out (O Medo Mora Dentro) about the culture of fear and how it reflects on Brazilian society.

“A obsessão por segurança, um fenômeno global, encontra sua expressão mais eloquente nas cidades brasileiras, que abrigam gente cada vez mais isolada – e insegura. Na contramão, há quem ache que a solução está nos movimentos que tentam reocupar a cidade.”

“The obsession for security, a global phenomenon, finds its most eloquent expression in Brazilian cities, which shelter people who are more and more isolated – and insecure. On the other hand, there are those who think the solution is in the movements that try to reoccupy the city.”
